I Didn’t Get My Pants

It’s 7am on a Saturday and Husby and I are both up. What’s wrong with us? Personally I think it’s left over adrenaline from buying our new car. That was a huge decision for us to make. The plan had been to wait another year. However, a series of events yesterday lead to the change of plans.

I know I know, how did I go from just wanting a pair of pants to being the owner of a 2015 Nissan Versa?

Well, my beloved and trusty steed, know as my Ford Mustang, had one too many break downs yesterday. We’d been valiantly keeping her going and she’s still running. However, Husby had to take me to work yesterday.

The Mustang’s exhaust fell off on my way home from class yesterday. So, I was going to drive my winter car, my Rodeo. Well it refused to crank. Husby’s truck hasn’t been running right so I didn’t want to risk it.

So, he came home on lunch to take me to work. On the way to my work we heard a crunch. We broke a tire rod end. So, how did I get to work? The farm truck that barely goes highway speed. Hence why I didn’t take it in the first place.

That’s right three of the technically four vehicles we own malfunctioned yesterday. They all have around 200,000 miles on them and are at least 20 years old. Until now we’ve been able to kick them back to life.

But it would have taken awhile to kick the three back. And the money I’d been saving to buy something new wouldn’t have fixed them. So we used it to make a down payment on a new econo box. It’s not the car I was saving for, but it’s something reliable with a ridiculously low interest and payment.

Turns out our credit scores were better than I thought. But I still don’t have my new pants.

I Just Want Some Pants

So we kept having emergencies and having to use the emergency credit card. Well, we’ve been using my paycheck to pay on it. And every month my paycheck won’t quite cover the balance. But guess what? I paid the card off today and have more than $20 left from my check. The bad news for me? That “extra” money is going pay my tuition. Dang it, I just wanted a new pair of jean capris since my other pair got ruined at work. :(

I’m Not Gonna Make It!! (or Why I Can’t Stand the Feminist Narrative)

Copious amounts of alcohol are required to make it through this reading assignment.

Do feminist really believe this dog drivel? I am so glad I only have one more non major upper division elective left after this one.

Analytical math and theoretical math can in no way be contrived into something related to gender, race, or sexual preference. Thank goodness.

I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to go through 15 more weeks of this. But I need the A, so I guess I’ll pretend to be a ball crushing all men are evil feminist for the foreseeable future.

I wonder though, why feminist don’t realize how much power woman have and always have had.

I wonder why then don’t take pride in being seen as Jezebels? Or Eve tempting Adam to his down fall?

Women have always tempted men, we can use that temptation to get what we want. And I think a closer look at history will show that’s exactly what our foremothers did.

Feminists shun the housewife. Why is that? Housewives have so much power. That power trickles out from the home and into society.

I’ve said it before, but I’m always reminded in situations like this, modern feminists have no self esteem. I thinking they abhor housewives and “conventional” women because we do have self esteem.

You see those of us who don’t count ourselves as feminist don’t see men as soul crushing a*holes because we know our own self worth. If you know what you are worth no one can take that away from you.

Feminist think women like me place our value on whether or not we have a man. But in reality, that’s what they do. To them I am worthless because I allow a man to “control” aspects of my life.

And God forbid, I have sex with that man. I “believe” that I enjoy sex because patriarchal society demands I enjoy it. My body belongs to a man and centuries of indoctrination make me believe that giving into a man’s sexual desires are enjoyable.

What in h e double hockey sticks are these women smoking? It sounds like some incredibly good stuff. Where can I get some of that?

Anyway, better go finish reading this assigned article. And figure out how to lie about how much I liked it. And compare and contrast it to an equal dog drivel article. Le sigh

Dogs

For 21 years of my life, I’ve had dogs. My first dog, Lazy Lady Booboo was with me when my mom lost her legs and then her battle with diabetes. They sat with Husby and I for the bedside vigils my dad’s last week before he died. They laid next to him until the funeral home came and got his body. They were my shadows the days following his death. My point is my pups have always been then trying to help me feel better. Tonight is no exception, Charlie sat on the couch with me for awhile. He just got down to get a drink and Tramp took his spot. I’m stuck on the couch unless Husby helps me since I hurt my knee. I’m so thankful that I have the pups to keep me company. I don’t know anyone else who’d sit beside me for hours in silence just to give comfort.

First Day of Class

Tags

, , , , , ,

So I expected to see strong feminist leanings in a class titled; “Women in the American West.” I did not expect to see it on the very first day in the very first reading. Could we have eased into the whole “all men are scum who wish to oppress and objectify woman” narrative?

This phrase in the reading tells me all I need to know about how this class is going to go.

“…who find in her either a tool or a victim of Anglo-patriarchal oppression.”

“Anglo-patriarchal oppression”

I’m going to have a hard time keeping my mouth shut in this class. But I need the A and it’s all paper based assignments. There’s no memorizing anything. The two exams are take home exams and we get a week to complete them.

Preparing For the Semester

, , , , ,

Operation get all the laundry done before bedtime has been completed. Now on to operations get all the dishes done by bedtime, get all the clean clothes put away by bedtime, and clean house by bedtime.

I want this all to be done in case my homework, work, football season, and ice skate lessons loads are so much, I only get once a week to clean.

Oh crap! I have do the weekly menu too!

It may seem like I’m over reacting, but I work until 6pm M-F and have classes M-F in the morning. My commute is such that there will not be much time between the two for studying. Which will leave the evenings.

I already know that the homework load for my math class will be insane. And I’m not sure my boss will let me work on homework between deliveries. The reading and paper writing he might. The calculus? Not likely.

And I know I should be seeing to my chores right now, but a girl needs a break.

I love to the Moon and Mac and Cheese

So I was super craving mac and cheese, but too lazy to cook some. Well, we didn’t have the stuff to make any, anyways. So, we drove to Walmart and bought my favorite frozen version. Then Husby saw the beautiful moon and wanted a picture. So we drive out past the city lights so I could get a picture for him. Then we came home, totally forgetting we were going to get McDonald’s chicken nuggets to go with our mac and cheese. So we turn around and head to get nuggets. Now we are going something we never do, eating in the living room. We’re about to watch some classic Smurf episodes. Husby and I truly complete each other. We drove to opposite ends of town to obtain what the other wanted tonight and we didn’t think twice about the requests.

I Hate Feminists

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Yes you read that right. And cue a fight and lots of hate mail in 3 2 1…..

Have ya’ll seen the new Nine West ads that are about to come out? The ones that feature the “walk of shame,” “husband hunting,” and what is it, drunch? Something about being drunk at lunch time, not sure what that one is about. Anyway, I hear feminists are making a huge out cry. I saw it here in Oklahoma on Facebook. A local news channel did a Facebook article about the ad champaign.

And if course someone had to bring up “women’s issues” and then they mentioned how only the men were saying things like “suck it up” or “get over it.”

So I a woman will say it. Suck it up, build a bridge, and get over it.

Can’t feminists see they are hurting their “cause?” No really, they’ve become laughing stocks and men and woman a like are making fun of and bashing them. Feminatzi anyone?

Every man is out to get them, even if he’s an infant. Bashing celebs when they say they’re not feminists because they like men? Well if feminists wouldn’t act so crazy and try to be all “men are evil and most be controlled,” fewer celebs would say “I’m not a feminist.”

They have distorted their own image from what it was about in the 1920s. I would say Susan B Anthony is rolling over in her grave right now.

I am not a feminist and I never have been one. I am a housewife and I call the shots in our home. I control the money. I pay all our bills. I call plumbers and electricians. I choose what and when we eat. I am in no way repressed.

I like men, they’re really stupid sometimes, but most are not out to “put me in my place.” The ones who were? Yea, they’re still trying to figure out where the verbal 2×4 came from and how a woman out smarted them.

And now I’m going to share the link and image of my comment and what prompted the comment.

Nine West Ad

To protect the identity of these woman and since I’m on my phone, I just cropped all names and profile photos out.

The last image is my comment and pretty much says it all. Seriously? Can we focus on more important issues?

Learning to Run

Tags

, , , , , ,

I started using couch to 5k today. I have the app synced with Facebook and My Fitness Pal. I know that a lot of people hate seeing other’s “bro look at me and my gym obsession” posts. However, this is really important to me and those who know me know that running can be and often is, painful for me. So, the fact that I started and actually finished an entire 30 minute “running” session is pretty freaking awesome.

I’m just really afraid I’ll get a lot of flack from people for posting my finished workout statuses. How do ya’ll feel about this? Are “I just worked out” posts annoying cries for attention or a genuine desire to want to share accomplishments?

Advising and New College Start.

, , , , , ,

Met with my new OU advisor. If I play my cards right it looks like I’ll be off of probation by the spring semester. Also, I am at upper division classes only. And I’m mad because every single advisor at both OCCC and OU lied to me, my associates of science doesn’t not in fact get me out of a foreign language. So looks like I’ll be taking 15 hours of Choctaw. The other good news? If I take inter session and summer classes, even with the language classes, I could still graduate in Spring 2016. So I guess prepare to not see or hear from me for a year. Because between my two jobs and going to class year round, I will have absolutely no free time. But I have to do this, it is so important to our future that I graduate. I will remain strong and I will pass all my classes. And this time around, I know that if it looks like I’m going to fail, just drop the class. Money can be remade, it’s harder to fix my GPA.
